Structure and expression of a nitrite reductase gene from bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) and promoter analysis in transgenic tobacco


A structural gene encoding nitrite reductase (NiR) in bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) has been cloned and sequenced. The NiR gene is present as a single copy encoding a protein of 582 amino acids. The bean NiR protein is synthezised as a precursor with an amino-terminal transit peptide (TP) consisting of 18 amino acid residues. The bean NiR transit peptide shows… (More)
